A note from the "oval pawffice"

🐾 We woofed on the phone with our pupperina friend, Sunny Obama. She is furry sad, but she woofed a message to all of us, pets: stay pawsitive and remember Bo’s wonderful life and his pawdorable goofiness. Have a puppuccino in his honor, best boy Bo loved nom noms.

First time I heard about paraprosdokians, I liked them.....

First time I heard about paraprosdokians, I liked them. They are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and is frequently humorous. (Winston Churchill loved them).

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.
2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you ...but it's still on my list.
3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
5. We never really grow up -- we only learn how to act in public.
6. War does not determine who is right, only who is left.
7. Knowledge, is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.
9. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
10. In filling out an application, where it says, "In case of an emergency, notify..." I answered "a doctor."
11. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.
12. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
13. I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.
14. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
15. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian, any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
16. You're never too old to learn something stupid.
17. I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

More from some well-known people:

1. I've had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it. –Groucho Marx
2. He taught me housekeeping; when I divorce I keep the house. –Zsa Zsa Gabor
3. I haven’t slept for 10 days, because that would be too long. –Mitch Hedberg

6. My husband can't stand to see trash and garbage lying around the house – he can't stand the competition. –Phyllis Diller
7. Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time. –George Carlin
8. There are three kinds of people in the world – those who can count, and those who can’t. –Unknown
9. I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world because they'd never expect it. –Jack Handey
10. The company accountant is shy and retiring. He's shy a quarter of a million dollars. That's why he's retiring. –Milton Berle

Wet white dog, freshly mown grass...what could possibly go wrong?

Here's a two-day old, baby giraffe...for no other reason than to make you smile....

In case you missed it....


In case you missed it, this is absolutely my favorite image from the State of the Union address. I think it’s destined to become iconic.

To begin with, look at that perfect framing. The first woman Vice President in stride, backlit by a rectangle of soft light, with Old Glory also bathed in that light. She’s dressed to kill in a tailored suit, high heels, head held high, looking as confident as any Vice President in memory.

Her entourage leads the procession with (I assume) her security detail, then the Vice President, then behind her per protocol, the alpha males of the Senate; Schumer, McConnell, Leahy and Thune picking up the rear. . The two massive gold-framed paintings on either side remind the viewer of just where they are, of the gravitas of history.

Add a highly polished foor mirroring all of the above, and you’ve have a photo for the ages.
